Witnessing Time will showcase new works on paper and film by Dena Ashbolt. Observing the diminishing life force of a bunch of tulips, Ashbolt uses photographic stills to freeze the delicate motion found in their decay. Through the mediums of photography and video she meditates on the way the fleeting presence of these flowers mirrors her own sense of time passing. Challenged by the notion that a work may simultaneously hold the past, present and future, she aims for a lyrical response that traces the lines of the tulip's dance of life and death.

Come along for afternoon tea from Babka bakery as Dena Ashbolt discusses the works in
Witnessing Time.
